Mine turned brown as well, it does die back fairly early each year so perhaps it's just because of the early start this year?
The Heucheras should do OK, also Pulmonaria. Your tree is very close to the fence, you do know it will get much, much bigger? I wouldn't put the Japanese anemone or the Alchemilla in such a small space, they are too rampant.
The top one is Creeping Buttercup, the white flower in the middle photo is Common Mouse-ear and the bottom one is White Clover.
It could be rats, but rabbits do this in my garden.
That branch right at the bottom certainly looks like garden privet.
Mother-die is usually cow parsley, Anthriscus sylvestris. Like most umbellifers, I wouldn't eat it!
Pineapple weed is related to Chamomile and can be eaten, there are quite a few recipes out there.
That branch looks dead, I think I can see evidence of coral spot fungus which only attacks dead wood. I would prune out the affected branches and keep it well-watered in the hot weather.
Dryopteris filix-mas, a lovely fern. What a shame it's been pulled up! Incidently, Bracken is far from harmless - it is designated as an invasive species in the wild, and the spores can be carcinogenic if breathed in.
The second one is Dog's Mercury, definitely a weed in a garden. Not sure about the first, except that it isn't anything that you planted!
